In the natural world we are born to live in order to die. In God’s world we are born to die in order to live. If that sounds like an upside-down existence, you are right. But that is what we celebrate today. Every person who loves and respects God is invited to participate in a most compelling drama called the Eucharist. Our church practices open communion for people of all faiths. This is the day to celebrate death, healing, and life given by God to all who accept it.
